We look forward to welcoming you to booth C07 in the Grand Palais where we will present new work by gallery artists Uta Barth (USA), José León Cerrillo (Mexico), Ridley Howard (USA), Per B Sundberg (Sweden)and Xavier Veilhan (France). These five artists, manifesting different points of departure, all share an interest in the development of given ideas and core elements of artistic practice, challenging ideas and pushing boundaries of what a given medium or set of theory may be.

Uta Barth (b. 1958) has worked for nearly three decades and has come to occupy a truly singular position in contemporary photography. Having made visual perception itself the subject of her work her images may appear empty as they, with blurred backgrounds and cropped frames capture incidental and fleeting moments. By deconstructing the conventions of visual representation she draws attention to the periphery and to the limits of human vision.

José León Cerrillo (b. 1976) Using language – as system of meaning with inherent flaws and implied power structures – as a starting point and drawing from graphic ideologies, linguistic systems, constructivism, geometric abstraction and modernist iconography, Cerrillo explores the possibilities of genuine abstraction through a wide range of media, from printed posters to sculpture, installations and performance.

Ridley Howard (b. 1973) experiments with how the elemental forces of painting, colour, shape, and design coalesce into something with emotional resonance. His paintings display a cool yet personal relationship to both subject matter and image where simple depictions of people, architectural spaces and landscapes are infused with a specific painterly sensibility. The works incorporate the vernacular of vastly different genres of painting, among them high renaissance, pop art and abstraction.

Per B Sundberg (b. 1964) has been noted for his radically innovative and experimental attitude towards the ceramic material and its traditional techniques. His craftsmanship is renowned and he has created his own mix of clay, glazing and engobes in his works, infusing the historically and conceptually loaded material with an organic narrative all his own. His non-conformist and sometimes provocative pieces have been met with critical acclaim and are to be found in both public and private collections.

Xavier Veilhan (b. 1963)’s work is multi-faceted; encompassing sculpture, installation, painting, photography as well as hybrids of all of these, he is also engaged in performance work and filmmaking. He plays with the notions of the generic, of the industrially produced object and of universal representation, creating objects at once ambivalent and stark. At FIAC we will present a new Mobile, in anticipation of his upcoming solo-exhibition at the gallery in Stockholm in November.

FIAC takes places in the Grand Palais in Paris, and is open to the public October 17-20. For more information about FIAC, please visit https://www.fiac.com/
